I think what made the Bonneville be so successful is a combo of relatively low price, good looks and strong modification potential.
I think they are looking to hit the somewhere around age 40-early 50's demographic...people that want the things they had or wanted back when they were young.
I doubt Triumph would lose many Bonnie sales to this bike; it's simply not the same guy.
Joe, I don't know if you read the first 7 pages of this thread but the majority of gushing, pining, wanting and planning on buying was done by existing Triumph riders.
I have believed for some time that Triumph is just a fill in bike for latent BMW, Honda, HD and Katie lovers just waiting for their love to be created by that company. Only a few die hard Triumph riders have sworn off this bike so far and I am worried we will lose quit a few members when that bike arrives here. Course we might get 90% back after they buy and ride the Timex. Bet they never acknowledge the mistake.
